    Ceulan Mill was built in 1847 by the Morris family (although the 18’ diameter water wheel was cast in 1891).

    It produced flannel and cloth which was sent to markets across Wales and Great Britain.

    A double Pelton wheel was installed to replace the water wheel in 1923.

    During the Second World War demand for flannel products fell and despite diversification into new products and the
    opening of a shop on the first floor, the mill went into decline, finally closing in 1962.

    Unfortunately, attempts to donate the property to the National Trust for preservation were unsuccessful as the owner
    was unable to provide a share of the funding and so the mill was abandoned.
